    The mount on the passenger side is the same for all small blocks. On the driver's side it's different with the 273 and 318 sharing one, with the 340 and 360 sharing another. The ears on the 340/360 block are farther apart. Some guys just shim the difference with longer bolts and washers - no big deal.

    You'll need a center sump 360 oil pan too. The 360 has a pan that is unique to itself due to it having larger mains than the 273/318/340 that all share the same.

    The engine mount ears are closer together on the driverside, actual 360 mounts are only available from Schumacher now. The torque converter has a balance weight for the 360 since it is an external balance engine. B&M makes a special flexplate to use neutral balance torque converters (318 etc) the oil pan is different for the 360, but easy to find.

    The left mount they stock is the same part number as the 318 mount
